Currently getting around 150-200 down on on the second floor and 375 on my main floor. The router is in the basement.
Depends on many factors, so really hard to say... I don't think you'll get anywhere near 1gbps, but might do a fine job around 400-500 guesstimating.

Which provider are you with? Rogers offer pods for free, Bell rents them for $10/mo, might be a good option for the time being

Probably varies. bought a couple months ago. Mine came obviously used. Wires were also wrapped around like wired controllers.

I’m with Bell. I usually have around 12 devices connected, however, only 1-2 devices stream at the same time at the most.

Thanks for all the info, just pulled the trigger. Been looking for something cheap but also good to replace my TPLink Archer C7 that's 7 years old and been struggling for awhile at this point.

Read this to better get the triband wireless backhaul capacity of M9


https://www.pcworld.com/article/402187/ ... eview.html


... The Deco M9 can rob Peter to pay Paul: If its dedicated backhaul channel becomes congested, the router can siphon up to 50 percent of the available bandwidth on its second 5GHz network (up to 433Mbps) and up to 50 percent of the bandwidth on its 2.4GHz network (up to 200Mbps) for a combined backhaul capacity of 1,500Mbps—almost as much as the Orbi RBK50....

Definitely, specially if you have a multi floor house.

Thanks OP!

I just bought a set, if the speed isn't ideal, or it doesn't work out, I'll sell it locally.

I have a 2-story detached house, about 2400 sq.ft.

Would placing all 3 be an overkill?

Just realized that there are only 2 ports on each unit.

How can I repurpose my Asus AC68U as a switch to connect to this?

How is this powered? Does each one need a separate power source or can it do POE?

Also, if I place this say somewhere close to a window (inside) near the backyard, would the backyard (outside) get good speeds?

Each unit has its own AC adapter. No PoE support I don't think.

I don't see why it wouldn't get acceptable speeds as long as your backyard is not humongous .

Just read in the Q&A section that TP-Link Homecare subscription is not included with the refurbished units. This might matter to some folks.

Yes this is important to me. When I read the reviews it seems to have it though? Comments in reviews about homecare, parental controls and anti virus?
